A new type of optical filter is predicted theoretically and verified experimentally. The filter operates under guided-mode resonance conditions in a thin-film waveguide grating. A high-efficiency reflection filter response is produced at the Brewster angle at which TM reflection is classically prohibited. Low-reflectance sidebands are obtained that are adjacent to the resonance peak induced by the Brewster effect in the neighborhood of the resonance peak. A double-layer waveguide grating yields 94% experimental reflectance at the thin-film Brewster angle for a Gaussian laser beam with TM polarization at the 1064-nm wavelength.
